Digital Signage Software Survey 2016 update
A digital signage solution consists of the components Hardware, Software and Content:
- The hardware is now largely standardized and therefore relatively inexpensive. What is needed for a professional solution are screens, a media to play the content (usually this is a Windows PCs, a so-called. Player), a server for retaining all relevant system information and their management and the communications technology between the central server and the players.
- The contents are determined by the objective, which is associated with the use (and thus always project and customer specific).
- The software defines the performance of the solution and is dependent on the demand and requests of the solution. The right choice is crucial.
Investigation of market-relevant software offerings:
Out of the group of providers of integrated solutions 11 companies participated, which we have examined in detail in the survey. These are providers that originate from Germany, Austria, the Netherlands and the USA and offer their solution in Europe.
